I've copied pretty much every thing that I could:

hdb: ST320413A, ATA DISK drive
hdd: FX240S, ATAPI CDROM drive

Invalid session # or type of track

hda: lost interrupt

Compairing with dmesg from the current 2.4.16 kernel (I was using 2.4.8)
shows most lines to be nearly identical to what I've got written above.
Particularly, the partition check is exact, and so are the CHS values
for each of the drives. Possibly of note is that the eth0 address listed
in dmesg is 0xf0800000, not the 0xe400 shown above. The rest of the
differences are mostly driver revision numbers and reformatting of
